  • Hi rehband and welcome to Travel.SE. Your question is very subjective and vague and it's like to be put on hold soon. You can visit our help center for more information. – Dirty-flow Aug 1 '14 at 8:35
  • Easy to answer- Kamogawa- its just only slightly popular. The beaches are far from packed. Lots of services are lightly used. Accomodation is cheap except for Obon- around 15th August. – user2617804 Aug 4 '14 at 14:13

Subjective information follows: (I live in Tokyo)

1) Many beaches on the main islands close promptly on August 31, thus removing the crowds. It also removes the services so you will need to pack in everything you need. One of the reasons they close is the cooler water brings in a lot of jellyfish.

If you want services you will have to head south / west toward Okinawa. Expect more crowds as a result, but not as many as Kamakura beach on fireworks day.

2) September / October is typhoon season, each storm affects about half the country. You get 3-5 days advance notice, enough to change the day trip but not enough to change the air trip.
